Nutrition, health and food security

ILRI research contributes to the CGIAR impact area on Nutrition, health and food security. 

If recent trends continue, the number of under-nourished people will surpass 840 million by 2030. Human health is threatened by poor food safety and diseases transmitted within food systems. Diet-related non-communicable diseases are also increasing across the globe. Food security, health and nutrition are paramount not only for overall human wellbeing, but also for securing livelihoods and economic development.
